Recent Purchases # 11


Well whatever, I went shopping. I had a bit of a weird meltdown situation on Friday night slash Saturday all day so I thought I deserved a little pick-me-up. Not that this is how I recommend you all go shopping but I'm just being #real with you all here. I actually don't regret any of these buys + two of them I actually bought a few weeks ago so this wasn't in one go. 

The first product is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold which I am not totally convinced by. I find that it doesn't completely dry but maybe I have been using too much of it so I will report back at a later date whether it's love or hate. The second thing I picked up was the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer because I am someone who uses a primer before foundation on a daily basis. I like a radiant finish but this isn't quite as radiant as the L'Oréal Paris Magic Lumi Primer so I use this one all over with the L'Oréal one on the tops of my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose + on my cupid's bow. But I like how this blurs imperfections, adds a nice natural glow + helps my foundation last all day. Then at a later date (aka today when I wrote this) I needed a new tanning mitt so I just bought the Tarte Brazilliance™ Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Face And Body Self Tanner because I have the mini + this size comes with a mitt too. I really like the color of this because it is more brown than it is orange so it looks a bit more real. The final two products come under the lip category + if you read my blog regularly you will know I'm definitely a nude girl at the moment (not right this second - I'm wearing clothes for once HOHO!). I picked up the Buxom True Nude Lip Foundation in Buff which I wore today + I think I might have a bit of a love affair with this because so far SO GOOD. I also got the Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Honey because I thought it might look night over the top (nude with gold shimmer etc, you know how it goes).

    Almost bought that primer a million times but does it realllllly help disguise spots/scars? Beware if you say yes I will immediately buy it.

    1. I will get back to you on that one! I'm on acne treatment so my skin is kind of perf at the moment but it helps with the scarring issue. I'll let you know!!

  6. I really like the Tarte Self Tanner, it's very natural especially as I have pale skin, it's fab for the face too ;)
